It may take some time for her to adjust to the "new"you. Sounds like she's feeling some guilt.My family was very accepting because we have quite a few vegans among us, but I do remember my brother's reaction as something like "Aww.. and I was going to grill hamburgers for us!" and looking sooo disappointed. I remember once reading that when those close to us first learn of our change in eating habits, it causes them to have to examine their own and makes them uncomfortable. While we see meat as death, they see it as life and abundance, and may feel as though they're losing a connection with us, and it's not uncommon to encounter hostility. I say just keep your cool and if and when the subject comes up, you could offer to explain why you've made the change, as Limes has suggested. Good luck. Keep us posted.
